John Danks' frustrating season is over.
On the disabled list since May 20 with a sore left shoulder, the White Sox on Tuesday announced Danks will undergo season-ending surgery on Aug. 6 at Rush University Surgery Center in Chicago.
The surgery will be performed by a team of White Sox surgeons from Midwest Orthopedics at Rush. Dr. Greg Nicholson and Dr. Tony Romeo will lead the surgical team with assistance from Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph and Dr. Nick Verma.
Dr. Romeo repaired Jake Peavy's detached lat two years ago.
Team doctors will explore and then correct any issues found in Danks' left shoulder during the surgery.
Danks was 3-4 with a 5.70 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 9 starts with the White Sox this season.
In December, the 27-year-old starter signed a five-year, $65 million contract extension with the Sox.
